The Power Of Living In The Present

Most of us are so consumed by the past and the future that we forget to live in the present.

Living in the present may sound like a New Age concept, but it can be one of the most powerful tools for living your best life.

Most of us live our lives like we need to be constantly doing something to achieve success.

Each of us has our own definition of success and what we need to accomplish to achieve it.

Many look at becoming a doctor, veterinarian, dentist, banker or lawyer as achieving success.

However, there are many unhappy people out there that have reached that level of education.

Veterinarians are reported to be at the top of the list for the profession most likely to commit suicide.

The drive to constantly do something makes us distracted and keeps us so focused on the daily grind that we have little time for relaxation, de-stressing, or self-development.

The desire to stay busy and succeed can be influenced by trying to keep up with the success of others. The constant desire to make more money, acquire the latest, biggest or the prettiest keeps us distracted from recognizing what is really important in our lives.

Trying to have more material things frequently leads to a life of debt, forcing us to remain in this vicious cycle just to pay the bills.

The fear of losing everything if we slow down or refuse to see one more client can make us feel stuck and unable to change.

If you want to make a personal transformation, you will have to make a decision to start living in the present, so that you can regain your personal power and start living fully in the present.

Until you quit living in the past you will always have trouble living fully in the present.
